Lovers of dramatic, open living spaces won't want to miss this 2100 square foot sophisticated urban loft. Renovated in 2000, this two-bedroom home in the desirable South Loop features exposed brick, hardwood floors and soaring 14-foot ceilings. Massive windows overlook tree-lined Michigan Avenue from the second floor and bathe the entire space in natural light. The vast great room offers many floor planning options (or potential for new renovation). Floor-to-ceiling built-in oak bookcases and work surface crown one end, making a perfect area for library or office. One bedroom is fitted with custom-made oak barn doors and includes a large walk-in closet. Theatrical drapery panels separate the second bedroom, while also offering a flexible living space responding to your current life/work needs. The spacious kitchen features sleek, modern cabinets, granite countertops, Dacor, Bosch and GE appliances, and a breakfast bar. A spacious dining area connects the kitchen to the great room. A wall of wide closets (one functions as a pantry) plus a large storage room provide an abundance of storage space. Two original adjacent bathrooms were renovated into one huge bath with a glass-door shower and granite vanity. This room could be converted back into separate bathrooms, as all plumbing was left in place. A full-size laundry room with side-by-side washer/dryer and a separate HVAC room complete the design. This well-maintained, pet-friendly building is professionally managed. Price includes one deeded garage space. Sound insulation was added both below the floor and above the ceiling, making for a quiet, serene space. Exposed brick was tuck pointed and sealed at conversion. Zoned for live/work, some units in the Association have functioned as photography studios or consultants' offices, although most are residences. Walking distance to Museum Park/lakefront jogging and biking paths, many nearby South Loop restaurants, and shopping at Whole Foods, Mariano's, Jewel and Trader Joe's.
